Infection, surgery, pin sites
External fixation is a term describing skeletal apparatuses that attach to wire or pins that penetrate the bone, used for complex fractures and limb deformity. 11-100% of patients with external fixation develop some sort of infection. The purpose of this study is to determine whether the measures taken to prevent infection are effective.
